Joe Maddon made sure to praise home plate umpire and crew chief Jeff Nelson on Wednesday calling him one of the best in the game. But Maddon believes MLB should review the rule which led to Jason Heyward being called out at first base for interference, apparently for veering onto the grass and interfering with a throw. The play was very close and helped thwart a possible big inning by the Cubs.
